Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
This mode on my monitor looks dull as dishwater, I am totally confused as to what this mode is for

I have the ASUS PG279Q

Once in this mode, you can't adjust the colours, saturation, contrast and brightness

The red colour that seems to be the only one affected

sRGB is an industry standard color space. It is device independent and shouldn't be assigned to a device like a monitor. What Asus is trying to do is give you a default standard setting in which photos should appear with color and contrast that is similar to what others who have calibrated displays would see.

But hardwiring it into a display is not the right way to go about it. It's a consumer industry hack for people who aren't going to use their display properly anyway.

The correct thing to do is calibrate your display using an appropriate calibration tool. For example: i1Display Studio | Request A Quote from X-Rite
